When you find people who speak your language, hold on to them. I don’t mean whatever language you speak natively, that would be a difficult grip to maintain.
I mean your personal language.
People who take the ride with you when your train of thought goes off the rails. People who see humor in the same things, tragedy in the same things.
It’s rarer than you think.
It’s really what life is, largely, making connections. Some are looser than others, and some are longer than others. And sometimes, not that often, you find people who get you.
You can’t assume that everyone will, though maybe you’re one of those extremely gettable people, in which case you’re probably too busy getting your cult off the ground to read this. And sometimes that click is so easy, you feel like everything will be like it.
So enjoy it, savor it, and keep it when it does. And also have a great Wednesday.
The weather and I are moody today. It’s nice when that happens, when you feel like the whole sky gets it.
But then there are the juvenile birds soaring with the joy of their recently mastered flying I can see from my window and honestly, that’s not terrible. Around and around they go, just to prove that they can, like teenagers with shiny new driver’s licenses.
Maybe not all of the moods in moody are bad.
I’m into my second cup of coffee and I still wouldn’t call myself fully awake. I had the kind of dreams that leave you tired, crammed with details and actions. And here I am thinking sleep should be restful.
It’s quiet though, today, it seems like that endless construction is constructed, and the rest of the world is taking its cues from the heavy sky. Meanwhile, I think I’ll try to sort myself out, one feeling at a time.
Have a great Tuesday. I typed “Monday,” but I think it’s too late for that. Though I hope it was.
It’s possible I may be overexcited about “Leverage” coming back as “Leverage: Redemption.” But it’s a great show and the kind of show we need, where the corrupt and the evil get what they deserve in deliciously-plotted ways.
If there’s anything we must have more of in the world right now, it’s the corrupt and the evil getting what they deserve.
It’s a brightly sunny day, not hot at all, at least not yet, and I shifted things around because I have a lot I’ve got to get done. Weird for a Friday, but here we are.
Here we are.
It’s been an odd week, I have a lot of birthdays in July and some are easier to shop for than others. Luckily the earlier one was super easy this year, but I’m having trouble with another. Usually something just pops out at me.
Not this year.
Oh well. I hope something will show up. Which sounds like a workable life motto, when you think about it.
And that’s it for me. Have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend.
